Missouri Senate Approves New Congressional Map

JEFFERSON CITY — On Wednesday, April 13, the Missouri Senate approved a congressional map that was drafted to accurately represent Missouri’s population, based on the results from the 23rd Decennial Census.

When the results were announced last December, it was shown that despite a population growth of 7 percent, Missouri would lose a congressional seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, resulting in a drop of nine to eight Missouri congressional seats. The Missouri Legislature is responsible for congressional redistricting, while the responsibility of redrawing Missouri’s Senatorial districts and House districts is given to two bipartisan commissions appointed by the governor.
